APPLICATION FOR NEW TITLES
At Mosaic Settlements part of the overall service we offer our clients includes helping with any details to do with the Application for New Titles. Here is a look at what that process is about and how we can help put those complicated puzzle pieces together!
SUBDIVISION LAND TITLING
Before the Application for New Title can be made, your plan must reach a status called: “In Order for Dealings” with Landgate. It can only get to this status once all clearances have been obtained and the plan has been sent to WAPC for examination.
At Mosaic Settlements, we will carry out a title search of the parent lot to determine if there are any registered mortgages or caveats. If you have a mortgage registered over the land title you wish to subdivide, we will need Consent from your bank to lodge our documents. Please be mindful that some banks charge a fee to provide a consent letter.
If there are any Caveats registered over your land title we will need to make further enquiries with the Caveator to determine if the Caveat can be withdrawn or if it will carry over onto the new titles once created.
Part of our role will also include lodging Notification and Restrictive Covenant Deeds along with our New Title Applications.
SUBDIVISIONS WHERE THERE IS MORE THAN ONE OWNERSHIP
Where there is more than one owner in the subdivisions then the Application for New Titles must show this in the plans. Relevant documents will be gathered by our agents at Mosaic Settlements such as Disposition Statements and signed Transfer of Land documents, as required.
There are times when we need to lodge applications simultaneously and this is something we can manage on your behalf. We will also make sure that it is clear on our documentation which proprietor is to own which lot so that you can achieve the outcome you desire.
APPLYING FOR SEPARATE TITLES
Where there are two or more complete land lots that may also include the whole of a part-lot, then it may mean we need to apply for separate titles for each lot or part-lot.
A part-lot is defined as a ‘part of a former whole lot which remains and is shown on a plan or diagram of subdivision after that former whole lot has in some way been divided or reduced in size. It will normally (but will not necessarily) be specifically identified as a Pt-lot in any relevant certificate of title.’
Examples of part-lots might include where there was a road widening, new sub-divisional plans have been created when owners have divided their land into part lots and sold it on, or where different parts of an original whole lot have different titles now.
CROWN ALLOTMENT REVERSIONS
When dealing with land titling in the situation where a Crown Allotment has been overtaken by the registering of new plans, it cannot then revert back to being a Crown Allotment.
